Out of the Easy

Reviewed by:

1950s New Orleans comes to life through the eyes of seventeen-year-old Josie, the daughter of a French Quarter prostitute, who wants to avoid that lifestyle and enroll in prestigious Smith College. A mysterious death in the Quarter leaves her entangled in a murder investigation that challenges her allegiance to her mother, her conscience, and to Willie, a worldly madam in the clandestine underworld. This is a rich historically accurate story of secrets, lies and the haunting reminder that decisions can shape our destiny.
